Carballido, Jose and Spits, Hergen (2021) Legends of allergy and immunology: Jan E. de Vries. Allergy. ISSN 13989995


Jan Egbert de Vries (Figure 1) is a cosmopolitan immunologist and an enthralling mentor with a large track record of innovative achievements in the fields of allergy and immunology. Jan was born in Strijen, a small town located in the Hollands Diep estuary in western Netherlands (NL). He spent his youth in the NL combining his studies with his passion for sports,becoming Dutch champion in decathlon. Shortly after his PhD, and like his fellow countryman Erasmus of Rotterdam, he started a long journey that brought him to France, California, Austria and Switzerland,although never settling in any of the cities he worked.Like Erasmus, he has been since an insatiable scholar ("Non est ulla studiorum satietas") and an inspiring mentor for a large number of students and collaborators.
